$5 - not expensive to get in, nice floor model with upper and lower level walk arounds and a little guide paper. A good way to spend half an hour. Fairly accurate topographic map, could be maintained a little better and didn't get the humor of the 2 little crashed spaceships (haha).

This is so cool, it's like a miniature version of Germany. My husband and I were the only ones there when we went, so we had plenty of time to soak it all in and enjoy it.

There is room inside that has two levels you can view a miniature "germany" country side and trains. At one time this was a really nice attraction...time has however taken it's toll. Many of the moving parts no longer work...the carnival rides, trolly cars, swimmers etc...all were pointed out as "moving" on the phamphlet but none worked. I totally understand... More

We really enjoyed visiting this display. We found the owners to be very welcoming, personable and knowledgeable. The self-guided tour brochure is excellent, definitely take the time to go through it to make the most of your visit. Their store has a very nice selection of unique children's toys and jigsaw puzzles for all ages. Also plenty of parking, which... More

Attempted to visit about 12:30 today, a gentleman who I suppose is the owner met me at the door and said they were "closing right now, not many people had been in today." OK, what was I, chopped liver?!?!?! He was just then putting out the 'closed' sign, did not even give me the opportunity to go in, or ask... More

The gentleman that owns this train-highway-landscape layout is an artist. Be sure to take your time examining all the detail work that went in to building this display. You will see highway accidents and catastrophies on the top of roller coasters and the whole time several trains are meandering through mountainside tunnels and towns. Some of the better views are...

This is a labor of love for the owner. Such detail, you've got to see it for yourself. The lighting isn't great for pictures but you can make do - I did.

Nicely done train layout with attention to detail. This was probably at its peak 10 - 15 years ago. Many items do not work, but many do. Several trains running, with appropriate. Glockenspeil advertised as being there broken for last several years. Gift shop on premises. Owner very knowledgeable.$5 entry fee

If you love trains, well then you will be blown away when you walk into this place. I believe the owner and his wife told me that they have been building this for over 30 years. Always adding and changing scenes. This was my favorite place to see. I love trains so much that I bought a HO train set... More

The gentleman was very nice. I think he said he has been working on this for 30 years. You can see the love. The settings are awesome...I wish more trains were running. $5
